  1. Step 1

    Cut apples in half, down the stem. Using a paring knife and melon baller hollow out the center being careful not to puncture the skin.
  2. Step 2

    Brush the inside and edges of the cup apples thoroughly with lemon juice to prevent browning. Placing them face down will also help.
  3. Step 3

    Pour the cider into a small pot or deep pan. Sprinkle both packets of gelatin on top and let it sit for about 2 minutes to "bloom." You’ll see a ripply film form on the top.
  4. Step 4

    Place the mixture on low heat. Heat and continually whisk until the gelatin evenly dissolves, about 2 to 5 minutes. Be careful not to let the mixture come to a boil. Then whisk in the melted caramel. Once everything is evenly combined, remove from the heat and let cool a bit.
  5. Step 5

    Add vodka and stir to thoroughly combine.
  6. Step 6

    Place the apple halves in a muffin tin, facing up. Pour the mixture into each hollowed-out apple.
  7. Step 7

    Refrigerate until firm, 4 to 24 hours.
  8. Step 8

    Cut the apple halves carefully into wedges and serve.
